At least 20 people were killed on Wednesday in Kano State, Northwest Nigeria, when twin bomb explosions went off at the city’s GSM market, near Farm Market.
A witness said he counted at least 20 corpses being moved from the scene of the blasts while the injured were taken to the hospital.
The explosions occurred during the late noon Muslim prayers.
The Kano police command’s spokesman, ASP Magaji Majiya, confirmed the development.
The Kano explosion is coming less than 24 hrs after a similar bomb explosion killed 34 people and injured 80 at a fruit and vegetable market beside a main road in the Jimeta area of Yola, Adamawa State.
